As you might have gathered from previous entries, I have an issue with food. I binge, I purge, I fast. Very rarely would I ever not be in one of those cycles. This year I’m trying to break these patterns.
I am still incomfortable in my own skin. I am close to 20kg more than I was 3-4 months ago so not that surprising. I have already lost around 6kg this year, however, I know I could speed it up if I simply stop eating. I have done water fasts before and obviously, results are quick.
The first week of the year I settled with one main meal a day, cofffee and tea and the odd peanut butter spoon.
This second week, am trying to up to 2 meals a day. Which I have done. Yesterday I had fish and salad for lunch and lamb and veg for dinner.
Writing this, I feel ridiculous. Here I am thinking I’ve achieved so much simply by eating 2 meals. But I did. The instinct to overeat and then purge was so strong yet I just drank some water and rode it out. I know I will have some lapses but I’m taking each minor victory as one.
